Directed by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers
Canada, 2011 (fiction, 5 minutes, colour)

Film Description:
"Bloodland, directed by [University of British Columbia] Film Production student Elle-Maija Tailfeathers, [...] addresses the global impact of gas and oil exploration with a focus on the hydraulic fracturing in Kainaiwa, otherwise known as the Blood Reserve, in Southern Alberta. Hydraulic fracturing is a process used to increase the rate of extracting and recovering oil, natural gas and coal seam gas from rock layers. In recent years, hydraulic fracturing has come under scrutiny because of the risks to health, safety and the environment. [...] Tailfeathers' film was shot with a completely Indigenous cast and crew."
